Dogtanion is the musical guise of Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau, a musician and artist based in London.

Drawing his influences from the UK garage scene and Drum and Bass raves near his Essex home, Matthew grew up listening to the likes of Bad Company, DJ Zinc and Luke Vibert. In 2011 he released EP “S W I T Z E R L A N D” showcasing a more electronic side to his music, featuring label-mates Kerry Leatham, Peter Lyons and Mr James Bright. Matthew has also completed remixes for artists such as Bastille (Virgin Records), and has begun to establish himself as an exciting production force, writing and producing for a host of established artists.

Dogtanion’s debut album, “Japan”, is out now.
